I’m going to keep this one short and sweet: My grandfather on my mother’s side was at D-day and barely lived to tell about it. My father was a career soldier and inducted into the Army Transportation Corps Hall of Fame. My daughter’s godfather is a Purple Heart recipient who was wounded on his fifth deployment to Iraq with the 82nd airborne.
Thank you so much for your courage, honor, and willingness to serve. We are so proud of you.
To my fellow Americans – make sure you think of and thank a soldier today. Whether we are for or against war in any form, we cannot even imagine what the world would be without those willing to serve their nations in this capacity. War is always ugly, violent, and horrible, and there are always senseless deaths and terrible repercussions involved, but the alternatives to war are generally equally terrible.
There may be a lot of things wrong with this country, there may be many freedoms that are limited, and freedoms not yet granted that ought to be – but those freedoms we do have, are ours because these men and women are willing to fight on our behalf to gain and hold on to them. Don’t take it for granted.
